How SERVPRO of Cerritos Responds to Wildfire Season
Silverado Fire Rages Through SoCal Prompting Our Restoration Experts to Respond
The active wildfires here in Southern California are increasing their impact as growing Santa Ana winds add fuel to these devastating blazes that are encroaching in our area. Evacuations have closed hundreds of schools and forced over 90,000 of our neighbors to seek safety. The "Silverado Fire" in the Irvine area continues to burn with the backing of strong winds.
- Santa Ana winds
The Santa Ana winds that are enabling the fires to rapidly increase their reach can have speeds in excess of 60 miles per hour. At this point it is not determined when they will alleviate force and fuel to the fire. The National Weather Service has warned of “very rapid fire growth” in this area. SERVPRO Meteorologist Lela Davis said that the Santa Ana winds were already very dry when they reached the Southern California valley, allowing them to quickly pull moisture out of vegetation, increasing the risk for wildfires
